    Game drives and boat rides with experienced guides made the entire experience an unforgettable trip.

    They do great rehabilitating injured animals. Some are long term residence, like Badgy the playful honey badger. This is probably the only place in the world you can play and pet one of these usually ferocious hunters.

    Lovely activities and a nice clean location. The rides were under maintenance when we went but otherwise it was a lovely experience. The change rooms are also spacious and clean. The rollercoaster ride was nice too. The best part was the lions. You can take selfies and see the lions up close.

    It's a busy area in the CBD, but has enough space and opportunity to jog with friends between the hours 5pm to 7pm or in the mornings on weekends

    We saw lots of animals. For ex. we have never seen so many nile monitors. And even very close. We had a 2W drive car and that was sometimes tricky though (it had rained a few days)

    This game reserve is worth the visit - you can see both land animals such as elephants and antelope as well as water animals such as crocs and hippos.

    What a fun experience to take a boat safari through the delta. Definitely recommend the opportunity as you will experience more wild life than you can imagine...

    We travelled up to Khutse in June 2019 from Durban and stayed at Molose for 3 nights, and then at Mahurushele for 2 nights. The park itself was just as we’d hoped – Adventurous and Wild!

    You need to take everything with you – which includes enough water and supplies, as well as petrol/ diesel, and other necessities like wood/charcoal etc (You might not see another person/ car for a few days – at one stage we went 3 days without seeing another vehicle!). At the campsites there is just a long drop and no running water, with a bucket shower if you take your own water.

    We weren’t experienced 4X4’ers and took an Isuzu 4X2 which still dealt decently with the sandy roads. We did get stuck once and needed to dig ourselves out which took about an hour – lucky we took a shovel! Most of the roads were fine for a 4X2, with a few sandy patches which were a bit dicey but which we managed to get through.
    I’d definitely recommend taking a shovel and closed walking shoes with you in the car, in case you either need to dig yourselves out, or need to walk if your car breaks down etc. However it was encouraging to see that the parks officials did track visitors when they were expected to leave the park and will come find people if they haven’t left on the date they’re supposed to.

    In terms of the animals we unfortunately didn’t see as many as expected. The pump at the Molose watering hole had been broken by elephants about a month before we visited. We still did see tons of elephants and springbok (21 springbok each day for 3 days to be exact – which clearly meant there weren’t many predators around). The only predators we saw were bat-eared foxed and a rogue African Wild cat near our campsite. The best camp for animals appeared to have been Khutse Pan where there was lots of open veldt and an open waterhole (this is close to the park fence but appeared to be the best place to stay in terms of looking for animals).

    Overall, even though we were disappointed with not seeing many animals, it was an amazing experience!

    Good mall with supermarkets, reasturants as well as cabs to go around, but some shops are outside facing the parking.

    The staff is very friendly and they offer a very good service. This place also offers entertainment like casino and they also have atm machines in house for those who can need cash. the place is also very secure and is strategically located not far from a number of malls.

    Stopped by in the evening after work for darshan. Was made aware that they also serve food during the weekends. Bought some sweets and snacks, which were really authentic in taste. Highly recommended.

    We visited this play with our two girls who are 8 and 3.
    A place not to miss when visiting Gaborone.
    They enjoyed so much and we had to literally drag them out.
    Friendly staff who would go through the slides with the babies.
    We would definitely go back and also happily recommend to families with kids.

    Easy stop to see a bit of history in Kasane. This Boabob tree was used as local jail and now you can walk right in an get some great photos.
